One review below talks about the chef being a strict vegan.... I dont think so! But anyway... they were happy to do a stir fry veg with no oyster sauce. Was quite OK and at $5.60 with rice... a bargain.

Happen to stumble upon this small family run cafe.

I felt like I was brought back in time by at least 40 years.

Even the booths and furniture is well dated.

The restaurant has many local loyal customers hanging out.

The place is not in tip top shape but then again it’s keeping its authentic feel.

The service is good and the staff is friendly. Fair advise... may have to wait a bit for your food.... cos it’s just family members here.

The food quality is quite good. We had lunch here and we enjoyed it.

It’s off the beaten path but if you’re ever near Barstow, drop by for a bite.

Happy eating

got the vegetable and hot and sour soup and was great as usual. the breakfast special can't be beat for 2.29 bacon, eggs , toast. great family atmosphere. some people complain about the age of the building but if your not a L.A or washington snob you appreciate the great home cooking and unbelievable prices. i'll take functional over pricy any day

I grew up on Chinese food. My mom was born and raised in Shanghai. Im always looking for that authentic flavor. When I came here the first time I didn't know what to expect. I like veggies with some meat. I'm not a big orange chicken type person, rather a veggie with beef type. Now I've been going here for over a year. My favorite is the Chinese greens with beef. Nice crunchy veggies and soft beef..great flavor. One of the sons cooks,the other takes orders. Grandma is in the back chopping, and grandpa helps with serving, cooking, or what's needed. All are friendly, like family. I wish I was better at names.. never had a bad meal or experience here, all good
